If you’re seeking a hard garden edge that’s both unobtrusive and long-lasting, look no further than stone or concrete garden edging. These rugged options not only define your garden but also help channel water flow to specific areas, a critical element in regions grappling with water conservation challenges.Resource:

The good news is that there is a wide range of styles and budgets to choose from when it comes to edging materials. The key is to choose a material that suits your region’s climate and soil conditions and that works well with your garden design, whether that’s curves, straight lines or a mix of both.

Beyond Borders: Exploring the Beauty of Garden Edging Systems

Plastic landscape edging is an inexpensive option that’s simple to install—no digging required. Simply lay it down and use a rubber mallet to drive the included rust-resistant spikes into the tabs. You can cut it with shears to customize the length of your bed borders, and it comes in a variety of colors that complement most landscapes. However, because it doesn’t form a solid barrier to prevent weeds and turf grasses from growing, this type of edging might not last as long as metal or stone products.

Steel edging is another durable, sturdy choice that’s popular with garden designers (you’ll see it in many of the gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show). It’s available in meter-long strips that link together and are sunk into the ground with pointed “teeth.” It’s relatively easy to maintain, as you can generally use your mower or whipper snippers right up to the edging.
